A Childhood Favourite: Crash Bandicoot 3 - Warped

A game that always stands out as a classic for me, is the legendary Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped. I used to be totally addicted and played the game at least once a day without fail.

Once again going with the theme of 'The old uns' are the best,' this game provides a lot of action and excitement. With an interesting campaign mode and a range of character than could suit any age, this game could keep anyone entertained for ages. This game is the third of the series, my personal favourite because of the variety of levels, underwater adventures, jungle mazes and racing levels allow you to never get bored.

There are more additions to the Crash Bandicoot series but i feel that they do not have the same effect upon me, as this game bring back many memories. In modern times,  this game could be very cheap and easy to purchase as it is on a Playstation 1. It is a recommended purchase to relive some memories!

Drake - Marvin's Room

Normally, i am not into this genre of music. However, this song caught my eyes because the typical audience  would consider Drake to be a masculine, gangster character. This song portrays drakes romantic side, with a slow, chilled feel. I really like this song as it goes against the norm and shows Drake in a different light. The beat is catchy and i feel Drake has a voice that could potentially attract the audience. This song is yet to be released on an album due to the fact it is a relatively new song. 

I would recommend you to check it out even if you are not a Drake fan.

Running a Marathon

Throughout the past 3/4 weeks i have been jogging with a friend around 2 to 4 times per week. This is because i hope to run a marathon or half marathon in the future for a charity that helps an illness called Lupus, a disease one of my close friend's mother suffers with. I will begin to start off with light training and become more and more intense as time progresses. I am really hoping I've got the commitment and self discipline to stick at it and hopefully finish. I was wondering is there any diet tips or exercise programmes to help me and my friend along our journeys?

Age of Empires II: Age of Kings

Everybody always says that the old games are the best, well in this case, 'everybody' could not be more correct. This is the perfect game if you are looking for an addictive, adventurous game in which your creativity knows no bounds. The game boasts a 'create scenario' tool in which you can recreate major events and battles, or even anything that takes your fancy. There are hours of entertainment within this game with an exciting campaign mode and a choice of 'random map,' 'regicide' or 'death match,' three different game modes that offer different tactics and strategies of battle. Although available for best results on PC, also can be found on other consoles such as DS or playstation 2 for retro gaming. In my opinion, this game is the 'King' of the whole age of empires series. It is also cheap to purchase nowadays so it is a recommendatory purchase.  What is your opinion of Age of Empires II: Age of Kings?
